can vs. may

Вопрос:

В чем смысловая разница между can = мочь и may = мочь?

Задание:

1. Заполните пропуски can или may.

I … not read because it is dark here.
I … not read because it is not my turn (= очередь) yet.

It is summer so it … rain but it … not snow.
Is is a hot day and there are dark clouds in the sky so it … rain.

can - могу (физически сделать)
may - могу (вероятно, предположение).
